More than three years after the release of his sophomore album Infinity, Belgian pop wizard Oscar and The Wolf is back with new single “James”. Unveiled on April 1st with a live release on YouTube, this new tune sees singer-songwriter Max Colombie return to his unique blend of pulsating beats wrapped in hazy vocals and nostalgia-filled melodies.
The self-taught producer shared that the song “James” presented itself to him in a dream and was written to celebrate the birth of his baby nephew. “I haven’t often made music in my dream, it’s only happened 5 or 6 times that I dreamed about music”, he explains. “I woke up and had the whole thing in my head. From the vocal line to the drums to the chords to the whole arrangement.”
Having spent most of last year composing new songs, Colombie is currently hard at work on his new album, which should be released in the next few months.
